Cougars Sign Second Round Draft Pick Bauer Dumanski
PRINCE GEORGE, BC - The Prince George Cougars Hockey Club is pleased to announce 2005-born defenceman Bauer Dumanski, the 26th overall selection in the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft, has signed a Western Hockey League (WHL) Standard Player Agreement.
"Dumanski is a well-rounded defenceman already for his age. He's a strong skater, who can drive offence from the back end," said Cougars' Director of Scouting, Bob Simmonds. "He was his team's leader, even as a defenceman, and his puck movement skills are what you need to be effective in today's game."
Dumanski played for the Humboldt Broncos Bantam AA team in the Saskatchewan Bantam AA Hockey League (SBAAHL) last season. The Lockwood, SK product led his team in scoring with 33 points (16G-17A) in 30 games. In two seasons at the Bantam AA level, Dumanski has compiled 65 points (31G-34A) in 61 games.
"It's an honour to be signing with such a great organization like Prince George," said Dumanski. "It's always been a dream of mine to play in the WHL and I can't wait to get started."
Dumanski is the fourth player from the Cougars' 2020 WHL Bantam Draft class to sign a WHL Standard Player Agreement. Riley Heidt, Caden Brown, and Ryker Singer have all signed in the last two weeks.
